Recycling and Composting
The building wide recycling and composting program was created to make it easier for every tenant company to separate recyclables and compostable from their trash.
Ygnacio Center has a “full circle” composting program, wherein compostable building waste is sorted into three streams by tenants.
The Property Management Office provides every kitchen or break room with three cans. The blue can is for recyclables, black for landfill, and green for compost.
Compostable items include food waste, napkins, soiled paper plates, and biodegradable products. Biodegradable products are labeled with the recycling symbol number 7. Paper towels in the restrooms are compostable and the bins are strictly for compost. Recyclables include paper, newspaper, cardboard, plastic bottles, glass bottles and jars, aluminum and steel cans, aluminum foil and tins.
